Re: Ram

It may work but you will only get the 333MHZ because thats is the max for that computer, Try it out I would be interested in seeing if it will even work at 333. It was not long ago it was 133mhz WoW hey now there up in the 1000s on high end computers. All I could say is it shouldn't hurt anything to try it, if it will even fit in the memory slot they may have a little different style. so it may not even fit. Give R a try.

A75-S229 won't recognize addition of 1GB of RAM. Added KTT3311 from Toshiba. Have rebooted twice and still shows 512MB of RAM.

Remove both sticks of RAM. Insert the "new" RAM where the "old" RAM was, and see if your computer reports "zero" RAM or 1GB of RAM. If the latter, put the "old" RAM into the "second" slot, and see if the detected RAM is the sum of the two sticks.

IBM G41 turns on but has no video output and gives a three beep sound. Can this be fixed? Was there a defect on this mother board?

Try changing your RAM\Memory. This is often caused by a stick of RAM going bad. You will need to get a notebook stick of PC2700 (333MHz) DDR RAM. I suggest getting a stick that is at least 512MB. The maximum that your computers can take is 2GB (2 sticks X 1GB). If you're unsure your ability to do this then ask a local computer shop\tech to test your RAM by putting a different stick of RAM into your computer. There may be a charge for their services rendered. Often they won't charge you for testing your computer if you pay them for the RAM if\when they diagnose it as definitely being the RAM that is causing the problems. It's usually pretty easy to change the RAM yourself. It's usually located in a compartment that is accessible from the bottom of your laptop. The removable cover with the RAM under it is typically marked with the icon of a memory chip next to the cover. Typically laptops only have 2 RAM slots, one on top of the other. Just move the brackets holding it into place and the RAM should lift up. WARNING: be sure your computer is turned off when doing this and be sure that you're grounded as well. RAM is highly sensitive to static charge (The electrical poke you get from door knobs, light switches, and blankets). A simple static-poke can fry your RAM. If you can't find your RAM in a compartment on the bottom of your laptop, then it is likely under the keyboard. I'm pretty sure your RAM compartment is located on the bottom of your laptop.

How to install 2+GB memory in hp dv6338?There are a few different posts on various forums that it's possible. I'm interested in upgrading to windows 7. How do i install more memory?>

Important that you have the right modules for your laptop. Also there is a maximum amount of memory depending on your motherboard. For example a toshiba only allows 1gb in each slot of 2 others more or less. Installing them is the simple part they will just snap right in. If they don't snap in on both sides the module is not installed correctly but if both sides snap in your o.k. also after snapping in with battry out put battery in and check your computer to see how much memory is installed.

The reason you are getting the beeps is because your computer has found Hardware problems. Different amounts and length of beeps mean different things. Laptops are different from Desktops so i cant tell you what it is but its most likely to be the RAM since you tried to change it.

When changing RAM: Not all ram is the same
1. Locate the original Ram. Does it Say DDR1 or DDR2. Make sure you get the same!
2. The Speed of the ram

PC66=66MHz SD Ram
PC133=133MHz SD Ram
PC1600=200MHZ DDR2
PC2100=266MHz DDR2
PC2700=333MHZ DDR2
PC3200=400MHz DDR2
PC3500=533MHz DDR2
PC5300=667Mhz DDR2
PC6400=800MHz DDR2
PC8500=1066MHz DDR2

Make sure both ram have the same specs and try to make it the same as the original stick.
When changing Hardware, be careful of Electro Static Discharge. Touch something metal like your computer case or a aluminum kitchen sink. Then static stored in your body may destroy the ram or your Laptop.

Problem installing ram

You have the wrong memory chip. The beep code you hear indicates that there is no memory or incompatible memory. The memory you need is PC4200, Which is a 533mhz chip. Memory has a frequency rating that is matched to the processor and motherboard. Not just any DDR 200 pin memory that fits will work, the frequency has to match or it won't work. The new chip should be labeled, make sure it reads PC4200 or 533mhz, if it reads anything else it's the wrong chip. If it is the right frequency chip, then you may have a bad memory slot, the chip is bad, or mislabeled. Here's a link to a memory configurator that gives the memory specs for your machine.
